Good Morning Monday!
Thank you for stopping by.
Running a little late again,
but Romeo the cat just wouldn’t stand still for the pose!
Actually, the truth of the matter is that I fell down the stairs yesterday morning, and all I can say is, it wasn’t pretty and it wasn’t graceful! I was more concerned about the cold tea I sprayed all over the walls as I lay there! No, I didn’t regurgitate it! There was some left in the cups I was carrying!
Anyway, so I lost a day, and today I am moving rather slowly.
Nothing terminal, but boy oh boy, we don’t bounce back like we did when we were younger, do we!
Thank heaven for shaving foam!
Here’s one of my all time favourite kits, simply stamped onto a swirly shaving foam background.
I have a stash!
but which one to choose...
This one! The one with lots of white card still showing.
Birdhouse in Black Archival ink.
You need a permanent ink pad to stamp on shaving foam art.
A beautiful verse by William Blake.
Love this one.
Aha ! Romeo! Our black cat really is called Romeo.
He is lovely. Old, very old. Born 1997.
Will still see off any cat OR dog
that dares to stray into his domain!
Add a few little birdies...
and an edge round the ledge
with a ruler and a black Sharpie pen.
Now let’s get arty.
I have used a micron pen to add a few lines to the background.
The shaving foam swirls help; follow them too.
Give them 5 minutes to dry, then go in and colour the areas in, in the same tones as the background.
are beautiful on top of the shaving foam background.
Just adds a base, so that the birdhouse isn’t in mid-air.
Like I was yesterday morning!
Soft addition to a very lovely backdrop.
And the pink splash in the sky is just delightful.
So there we are.
When you add the funky flower beds, or paths, or hills, or whatever you would like them to be,
the whole abstract background takes form.
Quite trippy really!
Now let’s see.
How about a little deal on the stamps I used...
If you buy the Birdhouse Kit,
we will send you the Blake verse (rrp £9.25) as a gift.
If you haven’t got some reinkers yet,
all I can tell you is they are pretty versatile.
You can buy them individually, at £3.35 each, or save quite a bit if you invest in the whole Kit (£150). And don’t forget, Clarity Members always get 10% discount too.
Have a great day!
